“Look at prikes peak”

30 Oct

Today I had a lovely time with the boys at the park. Mack pipes up while I was pushing him in the swing. “Look at prikes peak, its beautiful.” (Incase you are new here and were wondering, he is 5 years old.) Took me a moment to realize he meant pikes peak. He noted that there was snow up on the mountain (although what he was pointing to was not pikes peak, I believe). The sun was out and it was about 68 today, big change from the snow we had last week.

Today we made two batches of play dough and a volcano with the leftover play dough we made priorly. (Post to come soon of the volcano fun!) Mack enjoyed pouring the vinegar into the volcano and watch the lava come down the sides.

Little one enjoyed the park as well. He squealed with delight and the excitement he felt could hardly be contained in his little body, when he saw a train go by at the park. He was pointing and dancing and then looking at me as if to say, do you see that?! He also delighted and noticed each airplane that went overhead.

Mack also received a new pair of shoes today. To say he is a shoe fanatic is an understatement. Doesn’t matter whose they are, it’s always ‘shoe, shoe’ and he tries them on. He very much enjoyed walking in his new shoes.

There was a moment this evening that we explored in the yard together. He discovered a small bit of water in a container in the yard and enjoyed putting leaves and grass in it. Always makes me stop and see the wonder in the small things when a child does this.

It was a lovely sunny day here in Colorado, with a beautiful sunset.
